Whatever wear may be present is essentially invisible to the naked eye. Prooflike lustre in the fields highlights the sharply impressed reliefs and major devices that are basically free of distracting marks. One of 2,325 struck, long before American collectors awakened to the opportunities offered in collecting by mintmark. The majority of existing examples are Extremely Fine or lower grade. Another revelation of this date's scarcity is provided by the 10-year Dannreuther-Garrett auction listing, which records 44 appearances of this New Orleans date but only six of these are Choice About Uncirculated.

Ex Herman Halpern Collection (Stack's, May 1989, lot 287).
